Hilary Duff Tweets Her Gratitude After Split

By: Pam Wright - January 11, 2014

Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have called it quits after three years of marriage.

The actresses rep confirmed the split saying the two have agreed upon “an amicable separation.”

“They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives,” Duff’s publicist told ABC News. “They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time.”

A source close to the 26-year-old actress, who wed Comrie, 33, in August 2010, said the couple have split amicably and a tweet by the actress posted Friday seems to confirm this.

“There was no major incident – no big event between the two of them. They really did drift apart,” said a source. “They have put effort and thought into this decision for a long time…. And they really are great friends.”

Friday, the couple tweeted their thanks for the support they received following the announcement.

The couple will continue to parent 21-month-old son Luca Cruz together.

“They’re still going to go to the park together,” said the source. “She really does care about him and he really does care about her.”

    Gotta really love the concept of “till death do us part, or we don’t feel like it any more.”
    People shouldn’t get married unless they *mean* it. And no I’m not a prude. This lackadaisical attitude is *evil.* Think of the kid.
